This page will list all known upgrades to Samus's Chozo Armorsuit in the game Metroid: Virus; the many upgrades are unlocked as you collect them by gathering the artifacts along the journey, like in the original and Prime games.

With all the various upgrades scattered throughout Earth, it shows how diverse Earth has become in recent years.

Suit Upgrades

Name Obtained Uses Description
Fusion Suit Basic Upgrade Pass by Metroids harmlessly, Protect from Damage (by consuming shielding energy), use the Power Beam (open doors), Morph Ball (travel through tight spaces). This colorful, sleek suit was the main result of Samus being injected with Metroid DNA to save her from the X-Parasite infection she suffered back in Fusion. The partial Metroid DNA as well as a special new visor will allow her to be ignored by Metroids totally (older Metroids like the Alpha and Omega forms will ferociously attack her due to territorial instincts), but the sensitive Metroid DNA can't take the extreme temperatures in certain areas.

This suit also comes equipped with the Power Beam, Samus's standard weapon throughout the game and the Morph Ball function, allowing for travel through tight spaces.

Boost Modulator Suit becomes incredibly lightweight and capable of brand-new skills. This is perhaps the most versatile upgrade for the suit: doing this not only allows you to grab most ledges (like the Power Grip), it will give you momentary Speed boosts (like the Speed Booster), lets you perform the Wall Jump, and gives you the handy SenseMove (allowing for quick evasive movements).
